Sidney Crosby hoists Stanley Cup at hometown parade

There were about 20 to 25 people in the location during Crosby's visit, and 10 Tim's workers, MacFarlane said, and Crosby mostly stayed behind the counter but chatted with people on his way out the door after staying for about 10 minutes.

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) — Sidney Crosby has received a rousing reception during a parade in Canada, with the Pittsburgh Penguins captain showing off the Stanley Cup to his hometown fans.

"It was phenomenal. Just to see the actual Cup, and to see him being from Cole Harbour".

MacFarlane said he didn't get a chance to talk to Crosby on this visit, but did get an autograph a few years ago during a more low-key visit in which Crosby went largely unnoticed, simply using the shop's drive-through to get a coffee. "I feel pretty good though".

It's not the first time Crosby brought professional hockey's most prestigious trophy to his home province. "We came up to the front and saw Sidney Crosby walk through with the Stanley Cup and the Conn Smythe Trophy. I'm proud to come back here and I hope we can do this again".

"It's unbelievable, the way the people turn out; the way they support everything", Crosby said.

The proud captain paraded the Stanley Cup through his hometown for the second time in his career on Saturday, hoisting the Cup in the back of a pickup truck as it maneuvered through the 1.1-mile celebration that featured thousands of screaming fans.

Saturday's parade ends at Cole Harbour Place, where Crosby hosts an annual hockey school.
